Other user descriptions
La Porta Maggiore ("High Gate"), or Porta Prenestina, is one of the eastern gates of this old but well preserved Aurelian Walls of Rome of the third century. Through the door spent two ancient roads: the Via and Via Labicana Praenestina. Via Prenestina was the way east to the town of Praeneste (modern Palestrina). Via Labicana (now called Via Casilina) is directed to the southeast of the city. The original gate was built in AD 52 by Emperor Claudius, centuries before the wall, and was formed by arches through two aqueducts, the Aqua Claudia and Anio Novus. Porta Maggiore was built as a double arch of travertine monumental white, and contains inscriptions praising the emperors Claudius, Vespasian and Titus for his work on the aqueducts. Originally it was known as Porta Prenestina.
